Announcement Ahead of International Human Rights Day

As International Human Rights Day approaches, the Center for Democracy Foundation warns of the unsatisfactory level of respect and protection of a range of very important rights of the people of Serbia.

The most critical situation revolves around the right to free, timely and objective information, the freedom of expression and assembly, the right to a healthy environment. Particularly alarming is the fact that many vulnerable groups in our society are dramatically deprived of their basic human rights, such as the right to housing, the right to a dignified life, and the right to access to health care.

At this time, we would like to emphasise the importance of fulfilling the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda, which are another way of looking at human rights, given that each goal, in fact, protects one or more human rights.

We remind you that the state of Serbia has committed itself in international agreements and its Constitution and laws to guarantee the implementation, respect and protection of the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of all, and we call on state institutions to act accordingly.
